2009+ 1125R/CR stator problem information - July 4, 2011, 11:42 AM

So, the 2009 1125R and CR have frequent stator issues. In 2008, riders were complaining of not enough output from the stator, leading to dying batteries. This was because the knuckleheads were plugging all kinds of accessories and heated grips and shit into the bike, and it was too much.

For 2009, they increased stator output. Now it gets too hot. Some people are reporting burning out stators at 4000-6000 miles. There is a harness upgrade that is supposed to help, but many report that it does not.

The new EBR bike, the 1190RS, will have a different configuration (involving jets of oil spraying on the stator) to mitigate this, and is expected to be a popular retrofit for the 2009 models.

ANother solution people are having great success with is installing the stator/rotor from a 2008 model.

One other solution is to have the 2009 stator rewound by a company called Custom Rewind. It's about 190 bucks, and they already have a configuration that is reported to work well. It lowers power output slightly, and uses better insulated wire, to help with the issue.

If my stator goes, that's the route I will be taking. I may pick up a burned out one at some point and send it to them to just have a spare on hand.

Just wanted to post this so the three of us that have this bike will have some options. At the moment, my stator is at 4200 miles and shows NO sign of damage or problems... but I want to be prepared.

You mad bro?

But really we have a few people with those kinda bikes with no problems so far. But I am sure you will encounter a lot of problems with your red headed step child.

My stator shows no sign of the problems that seem to be showing up in the 2009s...

My voltage regulator was bad though, and the tech said he thinks it's because of where it's located, it was getting too hot

I may relocate it, or attach a heat sink.

Wish they had a solution when I burnt out the stator on my 2003 XB9R. I easily changed it myself but would have been nice to install an improved version.

2009 1125CR with 1,200 miles. No stator issue that I've noticed yet. Voltage seems to be good, esp. when at or above 4,000 RPMs.

Double check your vin with a dealer and make sure the harness update has been applied

LoL I'm re-reading these Buells threads since this forum is especially poppin'.

That very night I posted that, went to check on the bike and the battery was dead. Like for the 3rd time. Dead dead dead. Paid whatever, like ~$120 for a new one @ H-D of Fairfax. Lame.

I had my bike towed just last week because the replacement battery wasn't being charged while riding (stator issue I guess). Ironically enough, while the tow truck guy was hoisting my 1125CR 7 feet in the air and jerry-rigging it on the back of his non-flatbed tow truck, my wife called to say that UPS just delivered my Battery Tender from Motorcycle Superstore.
